Alstom signs deal for Safety Systems on Spain railway

A consortium of Alstom and Indra has signed a contract with Spain’s railway infrastructure authority, Adif, to supply safety systems for six tunnels on the new Antequera-Granada high-speed line.


Alstom and Indra will supply systems including ventilation and firefighting, fire doors, emergency radio and gas detection. The consortium will also provide the power supply for the entire system and will integrate it into the customer’s remote control system. The consortium will also maintain the systems for a period of 42 months. Assistance and emergency responses are also part of the contract.

The new Antequera-Granada high-speed will enable travel from Madrid to Granada in less than three hours.

“Alstom and Indra have a long-standing partnership and experience with successful consortiums in similar projects on the Spanish rail network”, said Antonio Moreno, president of Alstom in Spain.
